Temple Of The Dog Legal Battle Over Master Tapes

(hennemusic) A legal battle has begun over the master tapes to Seattle supergroup Temple Of The Dog's 1991 self-titled album. The one-off project - which featured members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam - was conceived by Chris Cornell as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone.

The Seattle Times reports A&M Records is suing London Bridge Studios co-founder Rajan Parashar to return the tapes following the 2014 death of his brother and fellow studio co-founder, producer Rick Parashar.

According to the lawsuit, Rick initially produced Temple Of The Dog in 1990 on a verbal agreement with the band before a label contract was signed in 1993, in which A&M alleges Rick agreed to turn over the master tapes and all rights to them for $35,000. Read more here.
